Strategic Capacity Group (SCG) is a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the ability of the United States and its partners to build strategic security sector capacity both at home and abroad. SCG assists donor and recipient governments to assess institutional capacity, identify gaps, develop and implement solutions, and improve the sustainability and impact of reform.
SCG’s Institution Building Program enhances the strategic capacity of security services, ministries of defense, interior, and public security, and operational and combatant commands to improve the sustainability and impact of modernization and reform programs. This is accomplished by:
- Providing guidance to address policy and implementation gaps;
- Assessing institution-building needs;
- Designing and implementing capacity building support to meet identified needs; and
- Advising on best practices to institutionalize enhanced processes and procedures to meet the recipient institution’s mission and goals.
